Last year about how to set your home recording studio. But building the home studio is not enough. You need to create your own instrumentals in order to get 100% original. I will get into music producing today. Any producer needs a control surface when making his instrumentals.
There are multiple midi keyboards/control surfaces alternatives, but the best can be found in the following list: Novation, M-Audio, Akai, Cakewalk, Edirol, Korg.
For low budget home recording studios I recommend M-Audio and Akai. In this video he presented M-Audio Trigger Finger Drum Pad Control Surface. The main features of this USB powered control surface are 8 assignable knobs, 4 assignable faders. You’ll also find on this board 16 velocity and pressure-sensitive pads. You’ll be able to assign individual pressure on each pad. The control board features pre-programmed maps for Reason, Live, GM Drum, XG Drum, iDrum, and more make setup a snap
